Subject: Me and Bobby McGee
I really like Jerry's solo in Me and Bobby McGee.
Nice performance. Exellent remaster by Jay.
Any talented musician with two hands, such as Keith, could easily play the organ AND the piano at the same time. Listen to Keith the kid is amazing. Remember he would be about 22 or 23 years old at this time!
Subject: Keith's second show
The keys are being played by Keith Godchaux. It was his second show I believe and he's playing Pigpen's organ, not his piano. Pigpen is absent but the show hints pretty strongly at what was to come in '72. Nice recording, check out Oct. 19 for more of the same.
Subject: Probably Tom Constanten on Keys
Tom Constanten played keys with the Dead on and off. Since I don't hear Donna Jean, I'd assume it was Tom C.
Also, tear-jerking Comes a Time!

Artistically remastered presentation of the GD with their new keyboardist, Keith.
No Pig in this show. He is ill. Supposedly.
Really, really, randy Jerry and Bobby throughout.
Phil and Bill are relentlessly unforgiving in soprano-ing our remaining sensibilities, et al.
Yet, despite all such prescribed guitar dispatch there remains a Pigpen-like organ part indelibly intact. How does that compute? Weir just announced there's no Pig on the premises?
Well, all I can say is that perhaps this is a mistaken recording for this date. If not, Weir just didn't realize at the time that Pigpen had slipped back on stage to add some organ presence.
If that pre-supposition cannot be assimilated, all is left to conclude is that Keith was playing some Hammond B-3 on this night.
